Welcome to New Essex Masorti Synagogue
EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT OUR NEW HOME FOR SHABBAT SERVICES
The NEMS executive are delighted to announce that we are now back at SWESRS and looking forward to when Shabbat services can recommence. The renovations are now completed and NEMS have a dedicated room inside the main building on the first floor which is accessible to all, with a brand new lift and a disabled toilet for our use.
Sadly the pandemic has impacted on us meeting as a community however, when lockdown ends we will bring you details of how we plan to meet safely again for Shabbat Services.
We hope to see you both online and in person very soon.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM RABBI ZAHAVIT
I hope you’re all well.
We can no longer meet in person. But we are still united, perhaps even more united, in our awareness of our shared humanity and what we are collectively confronting. We can take notice. Even more notice than usual – of how our friends, family, and community members are doing.
In line with the Government’s directive, there won’t be any more actual services for a while. But we won’t cease to be a community. There are other ways to connect:
You can contact the synagogue on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07922 090180 if it’s not urgent.
Janet Kogan will be helping us stay in touch with one another. Email email@example.com if you need help. She will match you up with other members of the community who will call for a chat or may be able to offer practical assistance.
You can contact me by email, RabbiZahavit@nnls-masorti.org.uk by or by phone 07815 776435 and on Facebook.
And please do join us every Thursday night at 7.30pm for a short online Ma’ariv (evening) service to include Mourner’s Kaddish and a memorial prayer for those who are remembering loved ones. Everyone is invited to dial in but especially the following people who have yahrzeit this week.
I will also be producing weekly emails and also a short recorded Dvar Torah on Facebook which I’ll share on the NEMS community Facebook page here.

Modern Traditional Judaism
New Essex Masorti Synagogue is a warm & vibrant community, where anyone is welcome to enjoy and participate in traditional Judaism. We promote an inclusive approach to Jewish life, values and customs, recognise the role of both men and women, and welcome the active involvement of children in the life of our community.
For 30 years, we have created a special sense of family and communal belonging and are proud that we have a distinctively friendly community, where everyone counts, all are welcome and many great friendships have been made.
We have long believed that our community should be the logical and comfortable home for most traditional Jews and their families.
We look forward to welcoming you to our community and to you experiencing the warmth of Modern Traditional Judaism with us.
